As we collectively go through the seven stages of grief at the loss of our Lead Pastor, we also are wanting to celebrate the legacy that Antley and Laura are leaving behind and to reflect on all that God has done in the past through them. March 31st will be Antley’s last official Sunday as Lead Pastor of River City Church, so we have some plans for that day to “send them off” with gratitude and best wishes.
Derek Harmon from Ocean City Church, our sister church at the beach, will preach that morning (Antley’s last sermon will be on March 24th). Then, following the service (and so much in line with what Antley would want), we are going to have a farewell party in the parking lot, with good food, fun and games, and a chance for folks to love on the Fowler family and express thanks for all they have done and all they have meant to us. More details will follow, but circle the 31st on your calendar and be sure to be there to help us celebrate!
Also: The church leadership would like to give Antley and Laura a gift from the church as they leave, but we do not want to pull from our RCC operating funds to do it. So, if you would like to help make this possible, here is a link to give online. If you want to give a check on a Sunday morning, please make the check payable to River City Church and be sure to mark it “Farewell Gift.” Any contributions are not be tax-deductible.
